SWAT leaves after hours on scene in Longmont, suspect not located

LONGMONT - After hours on the scene, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team has left a trailer park in Longmont, finding no one. 

Just after 10 a.m., deputies from the Boulder County Sheriff Office and officers from the Longmont Police Department served the eviction notice at Evergreen Mobile Home Park off 9th Avenue.

Law enforcement on the scene knew another person with outstanding warrants, Kyle Scarbrough, lived nearby. When deputies and officers approached him, he fled into a mobile home. Knowing Scarbrough had access to firearms in the past, SWAT was called to the scene.

Multiple attempts, via voice and bullhorn, were made to contact Scarbrough with no response. 

At about 2:30 pm, chemical agents were dispersed under and into the mobile home with no response. A robot and a K-9 were used to search the mobile home. 

At 7:15 p.m., after finding no one, SWAT left the scene. Although Scarbrough may have access to firearms, it is believed he is no danger to the public.  

Scarbrough is wanted for several charges, including failure to comply for a DUI, forgery, and third-degree assault.
